SufferFromEDHD on Lost Among the Stars in Search of the Moon

3 weeks ago

Cyclonic Rift is an EDH staple that I try to avoid so my decks don't get stale. It's a power creeped Upheaval with a wonky mana cost. IMO it should be . Reminiscent of the Invasion rare cycle of spells that could be played with flash for an additional .

Land Equilibrium not the first time you have suggested this blast from the past. I don't think it will be as effective in this deck as it was in the other one. Mid to late game I've utilized Patron multiple times and will have nullified the hefty tax.

Moonfolk offering oddly enough can consistently bring out on turn 4, 5 or 6. What profitable mono blue ramp tricks do you have in mind?

Spellskite is a very cool suggestion. I'm going to chew on this.

I hate Cyclonic Rift. Never run it. Unban Upheaval! Haha

Planar Portal can potentially grab the 15 powerful spells.

Staff of the Mind Magus is very weak. High Tide although neat ramp is better in combo. Was thinking maybe Mirage Mirror?

The single biggest thing I have done to speed up games was convince my playgroup that it is okay to concede. There used to be so much "I might have something", "I want to see it played out", "What if he makes a mistake?", and other useless time wasting shit. We could spend up to an hour on a single turn because one player wanted to see if the combo player would mess up the combo. An absolute waste of time.

Now, if I get my combo out I say "This is my combo, I have X pieces of protection. Can anyone stop me?" and we either play it out or move on. If someone casts Upheaval and then refills their board, the rest of the table has a quick five second chat of "Does anyone have a plan?" (answer is usually "No") and we scoop and move on. If someone dies, the other two non-winning players have a quick talk "Can you deal with all the Eldrazi? I can't" and we scoop and move on.

I love the look of this! It's not quite in line with the tapping theme, but what about Upheaval or Evacuation as a finisher with Black Vise?

Unlife on What ONE card would you …

It may be just my playgroup, but based on how we play, there's a lot of cards I could see being unbanned and not warping the format. I agree that Iona, Shield of Emeria could easily be unbanned, Hullbreacher, Upheaval and Trade Secrets as well. Out of those 4, I think I would choose to unban Iona, Shield of Emeria because I'm most likely going to play her in a couple of my decks.

I think your deck lacks some clarity/direction:

  • you have super-aggro in Goblin Guide, but then a lot of slower creatures outside of that

  • you have a lot of prowess creatures, but then mostly countermagic spells (which the creatures won’t benefit from)

  • I don’t see how you benefit from running Upheaval.

  • Your sideboard just appears to be more cards you’d want to include in the deck, as opposed to being cards that will help your bad matchups.

I think you need to figure out what you want this deck to do, and then focus more on building this list with that goal in mind.

Some other, more generic thoughts:

  • Shock and Pillar of Flame just don’t do enough. Typically modern requires its bolt-cards do at least 3 damage to be viable.

  • There’s a reason Jace, Architect of Thought is a $0.79 card.

  • imo it’s better to run basics than lands that come in tapped. You’re only running 2 colours so the deck should be able to get-by fine with all-basics, whereas taplands are going to slow your plays down considerably

DrukenReaps on 9/13 Commander Banning/Unbanning

I was having trouble getting the official commander site to load so here is this article for peeps

Unbanning Worldfire is... interesting. There are a few other cards that create similar states to Worldfire that are still banned like Biorhythm and Upheaval. Granted in different ways. But Worldfire can both be used to reset the board or win the game. Also Sway of the Stars is just blue Worldfire.

Hey Balamiir, I used to run a deck very similar to this one back in the old days! I suggest making room for 1+ Upheaval. My favorite combo is playing Upheaval followed by ‘tog, then finishing em off the next turn. Good times!
